Bug pasta? Not really, but it is ladybug colored. The girls wanted a pasta lunch at home so I made some mini farfalle (bowtie) pasta. I added quartered grape tomatoes, a can of black beans, about a 1/2 cup of sliced black olives, a dash of salt and a dab of Earth Balance Coconut Spread. I tossed in some vegan parmesan, and it was ready to go! Cute and zero leftovers. It helps to tell them it’s bug pasta! This was my dish.
And the dolled up version for the girls. Pasta in the middle and hearts of heart shaped strawberries and Rainier cherries.
My husband’s sides today are packed in his Easy LunchBox. He has mixed baby greens topped with green onions, cherry tomatoes, carrot & cucumber sticks. At the top left are seedless red grapes and the top right are Rainier cherries.
